Hand, Jon and Kim, Jae Min and Woo, Kyunghun (2011) Gaining confidence in models of experiments in existing buildings. In: Proceedings of Building Simulation 2011. International Building Performance Simulation Association.
A recent project between the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow and Samsung Construction in Seoul highlighted a number of issues related to the creation of models targeted at matching observations and predictions via short term experiments within existing high performance buildings. High performance buildings often include complex sections which are difficult to represent with wholebuilding models. This paper will report on the influence of the level of model geometric and constructional detail on medium term performances and fit to short term experimental data. Methodologies for the design of ad-hoc experiments and models is needed for buildings with extreme details. The authors discuss user directed explorations of performance data during calibration phases as well as methods which increase confidence in models.
